My first attempt at writing a crochet pattern and I’m hooked. heh. I’ve always loved crocheting and I like to have a long-term project in the works, usually a blanket, while I spend most of my craft time knitting.
When we were at the market at the beginning of this month, we talked to a number of crocheters asking about our yarn and patterns and it suddenly occurred to us that it would be nice to have a pattern to go with one of our yarns.
We decided to the pair the new pattern with our DK weight. It’s a superwash merino and so incredibly soft to wear.
I looked at different crochet stitches and found this one that I really liked. What drew me to it is that it has lots of texture, is a simple 2-row pattern, and suited the style I was looking to make.
This is so simple. It’s a rectangle. No shaping needed. It worked out perfectly with 100 grams (230 yards) of DK weight. It would also work in worsted and I’m going to try it in bulky later today.
Since this is my first attempt at a crochet pattern, I’m offering it free on Ravelry and we will have it printed up for the market on July 30th to pair with our DK-weight yarn.
1 skein of DK-weight yarn (100 grams/230 yard)
1 hook, size 4.5mm
